Well the 2006 Young bird series has come to a close. We had a couple new flyers this year for Young birds and we really enjoyed
getting our butts kicked by one of them. (Thanks Merl). Larry Pridmore joined us this year, after a few previous attempts,
we think he has the bug now and we expect to hear more from him in the future. Merl Emerson comes to us from Florida where
he ran the Americas King Cup one loft race. Evidently he brought some good birds and knoweledge up from Florida with him.
Merl is our 2006 YB Champion loft flyer. Merl won 7 races while taking A,B and Overall Champion loft honors. Merl also took
Average speed Honors for the A series and overall. AU 06 BMC 6124 BC Hen, a bird brought up from Florida was the A series
Champion bird. Congrats Merl.
Other Honors go out to
Frank McDonough, Frank won 5 races on his way to taking the B series Average speed honors. While his BC Cock, AU 06 SCO
3280 captured A series Champion Bird honors.
Richard Davis, Richard won 3 races and took overall Champion bird Honors with his Blue bar Hen, AU 06 SCO 3739.
Jack Ruppe won the remaining race.
